    Hi Joe, this fits the theme nicely, and a bonus that the Grebe has a meal. I really like the circular ripples around the Grebe.

    Works well enough for me too. Nice concentric circles, especially the left half (blue rings on green water). Despite being small, removing the dark notch at upper edge center would clean up the top part nicely.

    Fits the theme very well. Really liking all those circular ripples in the water. Framing is right on.
